Esophageal Atresia Associated Anomalies

Common Name(s)

Esophageal Atresia Associated Anomalies

Esophageal atresia is a disorder that occurs before birth where the esophogous does not develop properly and in turn affects the digestive system. This disorder is often associated with tracheoesophageal fistula and tracheomalacia, as well as a variety of other anomolies in other systems of the body such as the cardiovascular, anorectal, and genitourinary. Tracheoesophageal fistula occurs when there is a connection between the esophagus and the trachea. This is treated by a surgery soon after birth that closes the connection. Tracheomalacia results when the trachea is softer and less rigid than normal.
